The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly director Andrew Dominik is back this year, although not with a narrative feature. Rather, he’s reunited with his Jesse James composer Nick Cave for a feature on the making of their new album, Skeleton Tree. Titled One More Time With Feeling, it depicts the creation process behind Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds‘ sixteenth studio LP.
Also set to premiere at the Venice International Film Festival ahead of worldwide screenings on September 8th, the film now has a first trailer. It shows off black-and-white imagery (the film also has color, as well as a mix of 3D and 2D) as we see Cave both in the studio and out and about. Check out the preview below, and see Dominik’s ten favorite films here.
Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised rumination.
